The primary purpose of any sinker is simply to be able to present and hold a bait, lure or fly at a given depth within the water column. Egg sinkers are used in rigs intended to fish off or near the bottom. They tend to sit flat on the bottom and allow the fish to pick up the bait without feeling any resistance as the line is able to move freely through the central hole presenting your offering where many fish spend a lot of time on or near the bottom.
These sinkers are available in a range of light weights, suited to bait and soft plastics finesse fishing techniques. Machine made from pure lead, not hand made from scrap, Swimerz Egg Sinkers have smooth bores, sides and edges. Their elongated egg shape enables these sinkers to be used effectively in weedless soft plastics fishing rigs where they can slip through potential hazards that will impede other sinker shapes eg ball sinkers.
